Does it ever feel like as soon you get paid, your money is gone? Or like you don’t get any further in paying everything off? You might be stuck in the debt trap.
Here's How to Get out of Debt (Fast!) in 2021
Imagine having no payments, it’s possible when you have a plan.
First, why push to get out of debt fast?
Easily a third or more of your income can go out the door to pay off what you owe, not to mention thousands of dollars that go down the drain to pay the interest.
You didn’t get in debt overnight and you won’t get out of debt overnight either.
Taking on debt all started out slowly.
You were told to go to school to be successful and then ya take out student loans, because it’s “good debt” for your future, right?
While you were in school you had to get a credit card to “build your credit score…” then before you know it you’ve racked up thousands of dollars- with gulp…. 18% interest.
When it comes to getting settled into your first place you promptly buy an entire set of furniture with no money- just one low monthly payment. Hey, it’s zero interest, right?
As soon as you get paid, your money goes out the door to pay off what you owe.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
How to Get out of Debt (Fast) in 2021
Get out of debt this year, like a Spartan! Most people have heard of the snowball or avalanche method to paying off debt. The Spartan Method is a brand-new way to get out of debt.
Sparta was an ancient Greek city-state. The Spartans were known for their discipline, structure, and endurance. The 300 Spartans fought against the much larger Persian army.
You may have seen the movie 300, where King Leonidas (or Gerald Butler) yells, “Sparta, this is where we FIGHT! AHH”
Have discipline, structure, and endurance with your money. To get out of debt, pay $300 or more towards your highest interest debt.
Why pay $300 more? Be like the Spartans: few, but strong.
Three hundred dollars is small enough that pretty much anyone can do it by cutting a few things or bringing in an extra income on the side. Three hundred is big enough to really make grounds to get out of debt.
The beauty of the Spartan Method to getting out of debt is you have a defined amount each month you’ll pay extra.
How it works is you’ll map out everything that you owe right now in total for your student loans, credit cards, store cards, car loans, medical debt, personal loans, line of credits, or any type of debt. Also, you’ll jot down the monthly payment, and interest rate.

So on and so forth until you are completely debt-free.
